Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life is a one-semester text focusing on the essential biochemical principles that underpin the modern life sciences. The sixth edition offers deeper coverage of the chemistry of reactions while emphasizing the relationship between biochemistry and humanbiology. Equipping students with a complete view of the living state, Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life emphasizes problem solving and applies biochemical principles to the fields of health, agriculture, engineering, and forensics. It strikes the perfect balance of biology and chemistrycoverage, consistently placing biochemical principles into the context of the physiology of the cell and biomedical applications.
Trudy McKee is a biochemist who has taught Biochemistry at Thomas Jefferson University, Rosemont College, Immaculata College, and the University of the Sciences. James R. McKee is Professor of Chemistry at the University of the Sciences, Philadelphia.

Editorial Reviews

"The writing is at a level appropriate for my students, the boxed features are interesting, and the organization of the chapters is clear, logical, and effective. The new revisions and features in the sixth edition of Biochemistry represent a further improvement, and should make it moreappealing to our students." --Niina J. Ronkainen, Benedictine University
